Danielle, Caitlin, and I were finally all together and had two very late nights getting these wedding fashion features up. It was so great all getting to work in one room instead of remotely from our own homes (in different states!). Lots of laughter and good eating.
Yesterday, a reader, Catherine, informed me that Nina Garcia, fashion director of Marie Claire and Project Runway judge, pinned my home office onto her "interiors" inspiration board. I mean, whoa. And then there's the whole fact that Catherine took the time to tell me. So thoughtful.
I was in the bridal suite dressing room at BHLDN yesterday having a quiet moment, waiting for the other gals to arrive and the event to begin. It was a very surreal "Is this really happening?" moment. We've worked so hard for the past eight months bringing The Everygirl to life and working our patooties off to sustain daily features and last night was such a wonderful way it see it celebrated. From the many female entrepreneurs to women we've featured to readers who said they feel inspired and love the site, it was such a wonderful group who turned out.
If you were there, thank you so much for taking the time to be a part of this evening. Lots more to say but a full feature and recap will be on The Everygirl soon (with legit photos by the duo that brought you today's bridal and yesterday's bridesmaid wedding fashion feature)!

When I got in my car at the end of the night, exhausted and a lil' bummed I didn't get one of the cute Everygirl cookies Celestial Kitchens created for the event, I was surprised to see one nestled safely on my dashboard. My boyfriend had placed it there for me when he went to feed my meter earlier in the night.
I find it's all the small moments like this that when added together create a big, big life.
